WFPD SWAT Situation Ends With Man In Custody

Posted: Updated:

A three-hour SWAT standoff came to an end early Tuesday morning.

Public Information Officer Sergeant Joe Snyder said the Wichita Falls Police Department's SWAT team was on the scene where Charles Harris Rahe, 60, had barricaded himself in his home on the 1800 block of Collins Avenue for most of the night.

Just before 11:00 p.m., officers were sent to check the welfare of a man at a home in that block. When they arrived, the officers saw the man with a handgun at the door. He closed the door and refused to speak with officers.

Around 2:00 a.m. SWAT entered the residence and took the man into custody. Sergeant Snyder said Rahe faces possible terroristic threat charges.
